Ok, so I'm tonight writing this column from my own comfortable bed at my house. Although I still stick with my original stance that I would sleep in Tate once a week if we had the opportunity. Anyways, Day 3 of me going barefoot and I'm actually starting to show some cuts. I had to get a full body shot b/c I wanted everyone to see my incredible business casual look today of shirt, tie, and no shoes. The people I presented to in my International class all got a kick out of my hobbit's feet (and it's ok, I've embraced the fact that my feet are hobbit's feet, I mean honestly, I make Frodo Baggins look like a shoe model). Anyways, in between my little two and my 4th one on my right foot there are several cuts from I guess stepping on sharp objects barefoot. They hurt a little bit, but nothing that can't be fixed. I'm surprised that my feet became lacerated so quickly (only 3 days!). I mean, I'm 22 yrs. old, and I've been barefoot lots before. My feet have a built up tolerance somewhat and yet they still got cut in only 3 days. I can only imagine what happens to a 3 yr. old's feet walking around on the jagged terrains of South America and Africa. The good news is that we can stop that! I was very excited today to talk to my friend Aaron who informed me that he bought 2 pairs of TOMS shoes. Chalk up 2 more free pairs being given away!!! I know sometimes it's hard to see the big picture when you just buy one pair of shoes, but just think about all the people in America and that there are lots of others like you buying one pair of shoes, and that all those one pairs of shoes add up into about 400,000 pairs of shoes, which is something huge. I'll be honest, I really wasn't expecting this to be hard at all, I thought it would just be fun, but I truly am struggling now. I've soaked my feet for awhile and they still hurt when any pressure is applied. it's definitely given me new perspective, and I hope that it will encourage you to come out with us next week on April 8th and go barefoot. Also, if you are interested, Kinnucan's in Athens sells TOMS shoes, or you can hit up the website TOMS.com. Final thought for the day. You are only one person by yourself, but with others you are more than just one, and you can accomplish great and wonderful things that can change the world. There are over 40,000 people already signed up for One Day Without Shoes. Together we can change the world. One Step at a time. Go sign up today and I'll talk to you tomorrow! Catch ya on the flip side
